The goal for all students in Encounter Youth is to experience a healthy community of their peers and be encouraged to grow in their faith in Jesus.


Encounter56: 5th & 6th Grade

Encounter56 meets every weekend during each of our church services. Students are dismissed to their class at the close of our corporate worship time and released to find families.  No security tag is needed.

In addition to our weekly class, we also offer fun, off-site events for students to deepen their friendship with God and others.

Encounter Youth: 7th–12th Grade
Encounter Youth meets most Sunday Nights at ECC from 5:00–8:00 p.m. Dinner is provided. The evening will incorporate times of discussion in small groups, worship, prayer, Bible teaching, sharing of testimonies, and interactive games.
